Thanks for all the awesome info and previews! I'm really glad this will be open when we go next year. Looks like the perfect proving ground for my sometimes scared but Cars-lovin' DS. May have to be our first stop when we hit the park!

Hard to say what will happen but Rope Drop may change a lot since the focus is likely to shift away from TSMM.

For Radiator Springs Racers 40"
Luigi's Flying Tires 32"

The first is confirmed by Disney. The second confirmed by multiple CMs who have tested LFT. Mater's Junkyard Jamboree's I haven't listed in the OP because there is not yet reliable confirmation.

No, there are no table service locations going into Cars Land. Only counter service and snacks.

Just checked out all the previews that show the rides being tested. Fantastic. Kids will love all 3 and the adults in the group will love 2 of them for sure. I can easily see DH getting carried away with the tires (mental note to make one of the kids ride with him on that one). Can't link due to my low post count but saw it on insidethemagic.net and it showed testing of all the rides.

I'm planning a birthday trip for my soon-to-be 19-year-old son, and we'll be at DCA on 6/15 staying through 6/18. I'm wondering if there is any more info about the restaurant inside the Carthay Circle Theater. Is it opening on the 15th and can I make reservations there? We are staying at the Disneyland Hotel. Should I use the itinerary planning service to book something? And does anyone have any idea of the menu? Thanks in advance!

Information on the new dining location open to the regular guests, and the 1901 Lounge for Club33 members is very limited.

We are just a few days from the two month mark, when dining reservations can be made. So we may hear more very soon, or they may hold off making reservations, for a while since it's a new location.

ETA: Today in a post about making reservations by email, Disney stated the Carthay Circle Restaurant will open on the 15th of June. It also mentioned that reservations are not availabl at this time, but suggest when they are it will be announce on the Disney Parks Blog and twitter. Hopefully this means more news coming out soon about this dining location.

Regarding the Carthay Circle Restaurant. Since it's the 2 months mark today, I called Disney Dining. So far they have no information, other than the very general, it will exist and open on the 15th of June. They understand that kinks are being worked out and the menu is not complete. With no timeline they are hoping to get information and be able to make reservations soon, but suggest look at the Disney Parks Blog for information as that may come first.

Hey guys,

I just have a few speculative questions about the revamp. I know most of them will be more guess work, but maybe people know.

-In Carsland, do you think we will be able to see the Fireworks in that area like we can PP? That will be so cool if we could! I love watching them in PP overlooking the lagoon while they pop behind TLM buiding!

-Will the Fiffer, Fiddler and Practical Cafe will have an outdoor seating area? I would love it if BVS had its version of Coke Corner, Jolly Holiday area and you can sit outside to take it all in, even if its not very big. Also, has ANY info about the menu come out yet?

-I wonder how long will it take to get from BVS to TOT using the Trolly? Thats just more outside thinking I guess.

-Do you think there will be ANY features inside the CCT that people can walk in and admire or will it strictly be a restaurant/lounge? I know second floor will be the restaurant and I dont expect anything beyound maybe a small area that could be some tiny exhibit piece and a nice bar on the first floor, but just curious! I dont expect anything big as I know its been stated it will basically be a restaurant, but you can always hope!

Thanks so much for following up so extensively for us! I'll keep checking the Disney Parks blog and I think I'll ask Itinerary Planning to try to book something for that weekend. If I hear anything, I'll let everyone here know. (Although I have a feeling you'll beat me to it! )

Probably yes. One of the things discussed at the D23 Expo last August was having a premium place in the Carthay Circle Theater to see DL fireworks. With CL being further back from CCT, I suspect there will be a sightline to DL's fireworks.

No idea on seating, but DLR likes to provide outside seating wherever possible so it would not surprise me.

I have seen nothing about menus. Heck, even the CCT menu seems to be under wraps.

132.5 seconds. Flat.

Really, there are rumors of singers on the trolley and such. So no way to know if the trolley will stop or go continuously.

I suspect yes. Things that pay tribute to Snow White would be obvious.

Just speculation. The Red Car Trolley's will probably only move about as fast as the Horse Drawn Trolley in Disneyland Park. Both being limited by the foot traffic on the street. Not sure on the HDT in DL but on the Omnibus it took about 3 minutes according to a video I have.

The track lenth of the RCT is about 1.5-1.75 times the length of DL's HDT. So this would be about 5 minutes from BVS to ToT. Though there is another thing to factor in.

The RCT doesn't just go end to end. It has a stop in Carthay Circle. In some plans also a stop in in Hollywood, though this may or may not happen. There had not been built a station in Hollywood, though maybe it won't need a structure just a easily built sign. Picture below which you can see in the Blue Sky Wine Cellar in DCA, notes the Hollywood East and West stops.



Additionally this may add some time, though not during the travel. At the end of the line the Trolley's charge their batteries. They do this by induction the same way the Finding Nemo Submarines do. So while simpler to load and unload than the subs, there turn around time may be similiar.

On the physical model of BVS there are some umbrella tables, only a strip lining the building front. You can see them in the drawing above. Not the big circles, the tiny ones between them and the building.
